Hallmark: Jamestown Ten Commandments

From July 30 to August 4, 1619, the first Representative Legislative Assembly to ever gather in America convened in the church at Jamestown, Virginia. The governor, six counsellors, and twenty burgesses gathered in the choir loft at the east end of the church where Canon law number 82 of the Church of England stipulated...... that the ten Commandements be set upon the East ende of every Church and Chapell.The Bible approved for use within Anglican churches at the time of the Assembly was the Bishops' Bible of 1602. The significance is that America's first legislative efforts were conducted at the east end of the church, in the choir loft, where the Ten Commandments of the Bishops' Bible were hung.The church depicted at the top of our Ten Commandments plaque is the James Town Memorial Church of 1907. It rests upon the site of the 1617 Jamestown church in which the Assembly gathered in 1619. It stands as an appropriate memorial to the Christian ethos that birthed American government. Commemorating the influence of this version of Holy Scripture upon this moment in America's Christian heritage, the original spelling of the Bishops' Bible of 1602 has been retained.Share this heritage hallmark moment with your children, grandchildren, parishioners, patrons, and other members of your community.

Hallmark: Benjamin Franklin Calls for Prayer

On June 28, 1787, Dr. Benjamin Franklin rose on the floor of the Constitutional Convention and addressed himself to "Mr. President"—the chairman of the Convention, George Washington. For nearly a month, delegates from the thirteen American states had made little progress in developing a form of national government. Mr. Franklin had been a member of the Continental Congress and called to mind the fact that Congress had started each session by seeking the guidance of the Lord in their deliberations during the War of Independence. Mr. Franklin attributed the rancor in the Constitution Convention to the fact the members had failed to earnestly seek God's guidance. He believed greater progress would be made in their efforts if they began each session by seeking divine guidance.Mr. Franklin's request for prayer at the Constitutional Convention is taken from James Madison's records of the Convention and is tastefully emblazoned upon this print with a cameo of Franklin. This work of art is among America's heritage hallmarks and would make a beautiful addition to your home, church, business, or association center. Order your print today!
